[applause] and after having chaired the budget committee two years in a row in 2009 and 2010, i can honestly say it's one of the most challenging jobs on the board of supervisors and with carmen, you have a great leader, someone who knows the ins and outs of this budget and really will be looking closely at neighborhoods like arson to make -- ours to make sure we can get out of this budget so carmen is a great person tha
